DOCTOR'S ABACO LOOP
First time revealed to the public. Doctor claims if you tie this knot properly, you can fish the entire day or many days without retying. It is super strong. Give it a try.

Instructions:

1.Double about 8 inches of line. (Works well with powerpro, fireline, or other super lines. )
2.Make double overhand knot in the double line. Do not tighten.
3.Pass end of double line through the lure or swivel to be attached.
4.Take end back to the overhand knot and complete a double square knot.
5.Tighten the square knot carefully pulling the line out of the knot to get the size loop you desire.
6.Wrap the end of the double line 3 or 4 times around the standing line going to the reel. Carefully pull the spirals tight against the square knot and cut tag end close to knot.
7.Pull everything tight and test strength of knot. If it is tied properly it is almost impossible to break. That is it. Good Luck.  Drawing below:
